    Merkel Publicly Distances Herself from Wilders

    http://www.rnw.nl/english/bulletin/m...erself-wilders

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed her irritation at Geert Wilders' praise of her on Tuesday during the Dutch parliamentary debate on the programme of the new government.

    Referring to the Chancellor's recent comments that that multiculturalism has failed completely in Germany, the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party said that the German Christian Democrats (CDU/CSU) are taking the lead in criticism of Islam, and that this "breaks a taboo."

    Mr Wilders' comments have clearly aroused irritation in Berlin. German government spokesman Steffen Seibert responded on Wednesday that the Chancellor cannot be described as a critic of Islam. He stressed that Ms Merkel naturally has respect for a major world religion. "The chancellor has certainly not said anything designed to attract support from that direction," said Mr Seibert.

    This is certainly no surprise.

    Geert shouldn't have said that because she was criticizing multiculturalism not Islam.

    Imagine if she were to say- "Yeah I agree with Geert- Islam is a violent, barbaric religion that doesn't belong in Europe". Then she'd have a billion people wanting her dead, immediately be removed as chancellor, have to bullet proof her house, double her body guards and live the rest of her life in secret.
